Second person charged in murder of two Mississauga teens
A police press conference last May revealed details of the first person charged in the murder of two Mississauga teens. A second person has now been charged as well.

A second person now faces murder charges in the Victoria Day long weekend shooting deaths last year of two 16-year-old Mississauga boys northwest of Ottawa.

OPP said today that a 17-year-old from Ottawa was arrested on Wednesday and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Noah Nathaniel Annis and Alando Omario Davidson.

Post-mortems conducted shortly after the May 22, 2023 double murder confirmed the Mississauga teens died from gunshot injuries suffered in the early morning hours inside a home in Pembroke, a small city of about 14,000 people situated on the Ottawa River along the Ontario-Quebec border.

Police say they believe the victims were targeted.

The accused charged this week, who under the Youth Criminal Justice Act cannot be identified, was held for a bail hearing in Ontario Court in Pembroke.

Zacharie Robert Lamoureux, 21, of Ottawa, was charged last May with two counts of first-degree murder and attempt to commit murder using a firearm in connection with the deadly crime.

According to investigators, a third 16-year-old boy, also from Mississauga, suffered life-threatening injuries in the shooting, but survived.

Police officers were called to the Pembroke home, on Mackay Street, shortly before 3 a.m. last May 22 where they found two teens suffering from life-threatening gunshot injuries.

One of the boys died in hospital a short time later while the other survived.

Another male teen was subsequently located and pronounced dead near the initial scene, according to OPP investigators.

OPP have not said if investigators have information about the victims’ possible connections or why the three Mississauga teens were in Pembroke.

Speaking at a news conference last May after the initial arrest, OPP Det. Insp. Jennifer Patton said the double murder was a shock “not only to the victims’ families, but to everyone in Pembroke.”

The investigation continues. Police didn’t say if they’re seeking more suspects.

Anyone with information is urged to call Upper Ottawa Valley OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
